    Who would get an F-type over the A90?

    Aesthically speaking the F-Type has a timeless design, but I wouldn’t put it in the same category when it comes to driving dynamics.

    Hmm... the experts disagree with you on that one.

    As cool as a v8 is, it's everywhere. Not my cup of tea. I'll always go i5, f6, i6, v10 and v12. Styling on the jag is very beautiful, although the sideskirt an back diffuser makes the car look tall, unfitting, less timeless, less classy and out of proportion imo. Supra might be out of Jag's league in terms of design, and I would argue that you'd be lowering and sort of mocking the Jag by comparing it to a Supra, but what the supra does that the jag isn't able to do is executing the design. Supra looks like it's meant to look the way you see it as is. Jag looks like some drifter decided to put some body kit for it. Just my humble opinion. I mean no one any offense.

    This one though, beats Supra's entirely in any aspect. Bite me.

    I agree, the side skirts take away from the looks. Still love it though.

    I'm quite a big fan of the V6 S and the Current 400 Special edition. The fact that you can buy it in convertible form always was a plus for me. I had driven the SVR convertible about a year back and that thing was crazy in terms of the way it sounds. However, In my honest opinion, it just didn't feel sharp. Can't speak for the A90 or the Z4 but I'm hoping that it provides a better driving dynamics.

    To be honest, I can't say because I've never owned none Japanese cars. I've driven alot of none Japanese cars longest probably was about 3 weeks?

    But when it comes to owning; the only one was a VW Jetta Wolfsburg when I was like 19 and it was a terrible experience it was also at the dealer for the electrical issues.

    I guess if it came to European....the best I've driven and liked is an Italian Car. Ferrari 458 and Alfa Giulia QV.

    how about you?

    I don’t care to be honest. Back in the day it was easier to see and feel the differences between makers but nowadays it’s insignificant, at least to me. The F-type is a great car and the more I see of the new Supra the less I like it. It looks great, i’m Sure it will be fun but too many compromises to be had with it.
